Locate Staffing and On-Site Solutions Earns WRC Certification
Locate Staffing and On-Site Solutions announced today that they have now been awarded Workers' Compensation Risk Certification (WRC).
The WRC program recognizes staffing companies that practice best in class risk management to reduce workplace injuries and related costs. WRC certified companies maintain that a focus on safety and risk management protects their employees while offering a higher level of service to clients.
“Safety and risk management are important areas of focus for our clients” says Janelle Koren, owner and CEO of both Locate Staffing and On-Site Solutions. “This certification not only shows that we are an expert in these areas, but also that we are a valuable partner to work with to ensure safety in the workplace.”
Locate Staffing and On-Site Solutions are the only staffing agencies headquartered in Wisconsin that hold this WRC certification.
To be awarded certification, companies undergo a thorough review of their operational practices as they apply to hiring and screening, substance abuse, talent matching, employee orientation, client safety evaluations and partnerships, incident investigations and corrective measures, and return-to-work programs. The results are compared against a system of best practices developed by an advisory council of insurance carriers, insurance brokers, and staffing industry risk managers.
Information about WRC certification is published on the program's Web site at staffingWRCs.com.

Your (Employer) Branding Reputation
Posted on March 20, 2015
Branding: The process involved in creating a unique name and image for a product in the consumers' mind, mainly through advertising campaigns with a consistent theme. Branding aims to establish a significant and differentiated presence in the market that attracts and retains loyal customers (businessdictrionary.com).
We know you understand the importance of branding; logos, taglines, campaigns, however, did you know there is such thing called, employer branding? It is an organization’s reputation as an employer; its ability to engage and retain candidates and employees, in the same way that a company’s marketing tools apply to retaining clients and customers.
Our industry (and perhaps in many industries), has three groups to consider when developing a(n) (employer) branding strategy; clients, candidates and employees.
- Clients. Proof that your company does XYZ better than others, giving a competitive advantage in the marketplace.
- Candidates. Attracting more and better candidates; quality talent.
- Employees. Value proposition of employment; offerings of work-life balance, career advancement/development opportunities, compensation, etc.
